Basehor planning board OK’s development plans

September 16, 2004

During its monthly meeting last week, the Basehor Planning Commission gave two residential developers the OK for moving forward with construction plans.

Public hearings took place Tuesday, Sept. 7 for Hickory Valley, a single-family residential development at Hickory and 158th Streets, and Creek Ridge, a mixed-use residential development located along Parallel Road, west of 155th Street. All told, the sections of developments approved last week will add approximately 60 new residences to the city upon completion.

The Planning Commission approved, 6-0, rezoning the 11-acre ground of Hickory Valley, from suburban residential to single-family residential. The planning board also unanimously approved the development's preliminary plat, pending the developer's compliance with stipulations mandated by the city engineer.

The development will include 25 homes when completed. John Bonee, a member of the Basehor City Council, is the Hickory Valley developer.

The Planning Commission also approved the preliminary development plan and preliminary plat for the third phase of Creek Ridge on Tuesday night pending compliance with stipulations listed by the city engineer. Creek Ridge has 25 single-family homes platted for phase one, 19 duplexes, or 38 units in phase two and 10 tri-plexes and five duplexes for phase three.

Basehor mayor Joseph Scherer is among the Creek Ridge developers.
